1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

What do your friends and family thing of the past time?: one of my neighbors used to flick through the analogue german channels on astra 19.2e in 1996 at late nights when there was nothing on the sky channels and found the log fire on super rtl
I will lay odds he was not just looking for the log fire either:-bighappy

Neither was I with an NEC 5000 system and steerable 80cm dish on the front bay window roof but the motor noise upset my lodger in that room - but had a clone filmnet decoder and it got "interesting" channels late at night :D
PS: still had a few old clone cards until I finally threw them away a couple of years ago when I realised that "times have changed" - but still got an old card programmer if it's of any use to anyone :(

So you are not one of those Russian "autobots" that have been posting fake news - or are you :)?

Sigh - no John - he means the channels that were not officially available in the UK that showed late night nooky.

And, sometimes, rather more than "normal" nooky :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.
